I applied for unemployment and was denied. I decided to fight and appeal it.. I worked all day on Wednesday preparing my statement for the appeal hearing which was Thursday morning.
The judge called my ex-employer as the instructions said he would. The company gave him a phone number that was theirs, but went to voice mail and the box was full. They never participated. I won't know if I won until the end of October, but wow, maybe a I had a chance after all.
It seems participating in the appeal has "unchained" me from quite a bit of the depression. My family says I look 10 years younger, I am not having nightmares anymore, my SO doesn't have to kick me out the door to go to work, and he no longer worries if I am going to come if I was coming at all. I guess getting fired can sometimes be beneficial. In my opinion I was fired for bogus reasons. I hope the judge agrees with me.
The worst thing is the employer can appeal the decision. I don't think that is fair when they didn't attend the hearing. I don't think I should have to go through it again!
